    Ultimately, these 5 along with the other 50 in the series will be incorporated into a screen saver promo. I've been regreting that they were shot in automatic mode and didn't get the depth or color there should have been. Live a little, learn a little I guess.

    These are nice. it'd be cool to see them all kind of like those people you know where that wear those suits that do the shots over a few hours and than play it back on those things and they all go WOW!!!

    Sw1tchFX, I somehow don't quite get what you are saying here, but I get the "These are nice" part, and I can only agree! It is a wonderful series, like a very slow film, and the change of colours comes out so well.

    Nice series of shots - I like the idea of the changing colours/contrast

    As you say a smaller aperture would have made these even better, the auto setting looks to have kept it wide open, aperture/manual modes make a big difference for landscapes

    Very neat.
    I love the colors and how drastically they change through out the series

    I'm talking about those videos where there are a bunch of stills taken of say, a sunset and you can see the progression.
